Neutral Zen Bedroom Makeover With Minimal Colour

The Challenge: Go out of my comfort zone to turn my sister’s unorganized, zero storage bedroom into a calm Zen space – using MINIMAL colour.

My vision: Only use neutral colours (black, white, grey and beige), but incorporate textures and accessories to make the space cozy and warm. Think hotel room vs. sterile doctor’s office. Bring in more storage space by using Ikea Alex drawers (they literally hold so much stuff) and bedside tables with drawers for extra storage. Add texture through bedding, blankets, decorative pillows, art pieces and pampas grass to maintain the neutral feel.  

The Result: I absolutely love how this room turned out (even though there isn’t any pink pompoms). Repositioning her furniture made a massive difference to maximize her space and allows more light to come through. Tucking her dresser and TV in the alcove allowed me to create a separate area for her vanity area and made even more room for storage.
